Hi Leanne
Have you found out anything about Charles. I have his petition for pardon and list of crimes if you want.

How could I find records of a person who was held in the gaol from approx 1870 -1890s (on and off).
Charles Brodie Cooper was charged with uttering, fraud, larceny etc. I would like to know if I could find an image of this man (relative) and or gaol description. I have access Past Papers NZ relating to his life of crime.
